The Differences Between Acupuncture and Electro Acupuncture

There are some practitioners in Brisbane that not only practice acupuncture but also offer their clients electro acupuncture. This is a technique of acupuncture that has just more recently come into use. Some say that it was first used by doctors in France back in the 1940s who were trying to help make bone fractures heal faster. Others claim that the experiments didn't start until around 1958 when some in China began using this form of acupuncture as a way to relieve pain. No matter when it first started, it seems to be getting a lot more popular and being used for a variety of different conditions.

The electro acupuncture used in most Brisbane clinics is quite similar to the normal acupuncture in the way that the same points in the body are stimulated during the treatment. The needles for the electro acupuncture are put into specific points of the body just like traditional but then the needles are attached to a device that will then generate continuous electric pulses through small clips. These are used to adjust the frequency and the intensity of the electric impulses that are being delivered. It all depends upon the condition that is being treated. Several different needles can be stimulated simultaneously as well and not for any longer than 30 minutes.

The practitioner in Brisbane who uses electro acupuncture does not have to be quite as precise with the insertion of the needles as they need to be with traditional acupuncture. The reason for this is that the current that is delivered through the needles will stimulate a larger area than the actual needle does. Another advantage of this kind of acupuncture is that it even can be used without the use of any needles. This procedure can also be done by using electrodes that are taped to the skin instead of inserting needles into the clients skin. This is great for those people who have a fear of needles.

Patients who have this type of acupuncture done may experience a type of tingling sensation while they are going through the treatment and this is due to the electric current. But in most cases the effect that is produced by the current is not felt.

Those who have a history of seizures, heart disease, epilepsy or stroke should not receive electro acupuncture because this may not be safe for them. Also it should be noted that the treatment should never be used on a patient's head, throat or directly over the heart. Other than these warnings there does not appear to be any kind of risk involved when receiving this treatment.

Note: Before trying this type of acupuncture, it is a good idea to check with your doctor first.
